Well, it took me awhile to finish this one but only because I lost the book and had to find a replacement! Anyway, this was a great story and it even brought tears to my eyes.

This is a sweet love story and the only reason it isn't 5 stars is because the beginning was kind of slow. If you want something refreshing in a HP, this is a good one to read. It is part of a series but I think it can stand alone despite the references about the family diamonds.

Kate Hewitt is a new author for me in the H

3 1/2 stars. Texas Destiny Harlequin Presents style. :-) Honorable and guilt-ridden brother of a Arabian king must deliver his princess to him, but of course they fall in love.

I like this sort of plot, but had a few issues with the book. I think the author tried to get the cultural details correct, but the attitudes of the heroine towards her culture niggled at me. It makes sense that she'd have picked up a lot of Western ideas at college in England, but there's no balance to her point of view,

The beginning was kind of slow but I love an honorable tortured guilt-ridden hero and a heroine who brings him to life. Passionate, angsty book about a forbidden love!

liked it. worked out nicely.

Not bad for a piece of fluff. I think Kate Hewitt is a very talented writer. Even though the length of these books are short, she manages to give us the whole journey of their love without skimping on their sacrifice and anguish. Very nicely done.

i think i would have easily given 4 stars if only i had not read The Inherited Bride by Maisey Yates. The Inherited Bride has the same story as this one and Maisey Yates has done a far better job/writing than Kate
Sara
Not a bad story. The characters had their struggles and overcame the obstacles of their love. The ending was a bit too pat, though.

I loved this book. So much better than the previous books in the series!!
